It's my great pleasure to welcome back to the team the man who started this great site we all call home. Please give a hearty hand to Jalopnik's new Senior Editor, Mike Spinelli. — Ed.
Oh hey. Thanks for the warm welcome. I know a lot's happened around here since I bailed from Jalopnik in 2007 to write stuff, run a magazine and, as the Brits say, "cock about." That's not to say I haven't spent these years productively. I've driven the fastest cars, sipped the most deluxe champagnes from grapes crushed beneath the silken arches of willowy Gallic virgins, enjoyed tons of free track time, satisfied ungodly automotive urges and generally become a sodden, unemployable bastard. Goody for me.
